The History of Smoke Cleansing
The art of smoke cleansing, otherwise known as smudging, traces its roots back to Indigenous cultures across the globe, from Native Americans to indigenous peoples of Asia and South America. Smoke cleansing involves the burning of sacred herbs to purify and cleanse both physical spaces and the energetic aura.
How to Perform a Smoke Cleanse:
- Gather Your Tools: Light your smudge stick using a candle, match, or lighter. Allow it to smolder and smoke.
- Set Intentions: Hold your smudge stick with reverence and set your intentions, whether they be protection, purification, or healing.
- Begin Smudging: Starting at the entrance, move clockwise through each room, wafting the smoke gently into corners, doorways, and windows. Visualize negative energies being replaced with positive light.
- Focus on Yourself: After smudging your space, smudge yourself by gently waving the smoke around your body. Visualize any negativity dissolving.
- Extinguish the Smudge Stick: Safely extinguish the smudge stick when you’re finished by pressing it into a fireproof container, such as an abalone shell or ceramic dish.
